Background Data Sources

1) GOES X-ray Flux

Years available: January, 2002 - current time
The 2s cadence X-ray flux received by GOES/XRS is used as the background data in the project. The fluxes in two channels (1-8 A and 0.5-4 A) are displayed.
Currently the events are displayed in front of this data, which helps to find reflection of different events in soft X-ray activity of the Sun.
Additionaly, it is possible to display Temperature and Emission measure graphs calculated from GOES data in single-temperature approximation.


Years available: February, 2010 - current time
For better presentation of the data, there is a 10-second averaging applied to the ESP/EVE curves.
The curves are available for the whole instrument operational period and are daily updated

3) Nobeyama Polarimeter Light Curves

Years available: January, 2010 - current time
The Nobeyama polarimeter data, as well as ESP/EVE data, are averaged for each 10 seconds.
The curves are available starting from January, 01, 2010 and are daily updated

Databases of events

1) GOES flare list

Years available: January, 2002 - current time
The GOES daily flare lists represent the events registered by GOES satellite. Currently only X-Ray activity events are considered.
It is possible to search for GOES events based on their physical characteristics, as Temperature and Emission Measure in single-temperature approximation, and their class.

2) HEK register flare list

Years available: February, 2010 - current time
HEK register is developed to help browsing data of the SDO/AIA telescope. The catalog contains reports about the activities in different segements of the solar disk.
Users can search based on peak flux and AIA channel of the observed events.

3) RHESSI flare list

Years available: January, 2002 - current time
The RHESSI monthly flare lists are based on observations of the X-ray counts/flux by RHESSI satellite.
Currently RHESSI filters for event duration, peak counts and observed energy range are implemented.

4) Hinode Flare Catalog

Years available: 01, November, 2006 - 31, July, 2016
Integration with the Hinode flare catalog allows to check which GOES events were observed by Hinode satellite.
One can filter the events based on number of observational sets of Hinode instruments.

5) Fermi GBM solar flare catalog

Years available: 01, November, 2008 - current time
The list of the flares observed by the Fermi GBM in the 8 keV - 40 MeV energy range. Includes duration of the observed flares and number of counts during the flares.

6) Filament eruption catalog

Available for: 24, April, 2010 - 19, October, 2014
Integration with the Filament Eruption catalog allows to select events with the filaments observed nearby.
It is possible to tune spatial and temporal overlapping of filaments, and make a selection based on a variety of characteristics.

7) Konus-WIND flare catalog

Presented for: 01, January, 2002 - 23, July, 2016
Last sync was made on August, 29th, 2016
Integration with the catalog of flares observed by Konus-WIND satellite.

8) OVSA flare catalog

Presented for: 01, January, 2002 - 31, December, 2003
The catalog includes events observed by Owens Valley Solar Array.

9) CACTus CME catalog

Presented for: 01, January, 2002 - current time
CACTus is the autonomous detection system for Coronal Mass Ejections (CME) in image sequences from LASCO, reporting several CME parameters.

Coverage Check


Years available: 18, July, 2013 - current time
Now it is possible to check the potential event coverage by IRIS.
One can apply variety of filters and select observational modes to find events convenient for their studies.

2) Nobeyama Polarimeter

Years available: January, 2010 - current time
Check of NoRP instrument coverage of the event time period.
